Latest News: The Short Programme At The US Figure Skating Championships Is Dominated By Ilia Malinin
Ilia Malinin, the clear winner of the U.S. Champions, dominated the short program, completing two stunning quadruple jumps and establishing a commanding lead going into Sunday’s free skate.
In San Jose, California, Malinin, the second-ranked skater in the world, performed a quad Lutz in conjunction with a quad toe loop.
Malinin, who suffered repeated leaping failures in his season’s first four short programs, remarked on USA Network, “I still can’t even believe I was able to pull that off.” “Throughout the entire season, I was constantly anxious for the brief since I didn’t realize what to anticipate, but I believe in going to various choreographers. This season runs the chance of me learning anything new.”
Jason Brown, the 2015 U.S. champion, participates for the first time after finishing sixth at the Olympics in February.
He scored 110.36 points, outscoring Brown by 10.11 points. Brown didn’t attempt a quadruple, but he possesses the creativity that Malinin possesses in terms of leaps.
